Lemon Lake

A couple of buddies and I are planning on heading up to lemon lake. For people who have played, which of the five should we do first (we plan to hit them all) and how much is it per person? Also, is the course near valparaiso worth hitting up while we're near?

There are only four courses at Lemon Lake. The Silver course is shorter tees and some baskets on the Gold course although it does play quite a bit different on several holes. It's $7 per carload (not per person) for non-Lake County residents and $4 for county residents. Same pricing per carload for Valpo and it's a course worth checking out.

If I were to do them again in one day, I'd probably go blue, gold (or silver), red, white. In terms of length that's like 2 1 3 4, and difficulty 3 1 2 4, IMO.

rogers is sort of a blend of all of lemon lake. it's got open holes, short tricky holes, wooded, non wooded...long holes, downhills...uphills.

I like the Valpo course better than any individual course at Lemon Lake. That course is all placement (on the front 18 anyway). Super fun course.

But on the Lemon Lake course, I think playing Blue first is the way to go. The front nine is kinda open and easier to get warmed up on. I'd go Blue, Gold, Red, White. Gold is "tougher" than Red and both are solid. White you can still pull off with a tired arm. I'd definitely play last unless that's you warmup. Then White, Gold, Red, Blue is the way I'd go. But if you only got 3 in, white is the skipper.

You can also save time by playing silver and gold at the same time by throwing both and skipping an extra walk around the course. I would agree that Valpo is my favorite of those 5 courses, but Red, Blue and Silver/Gold are all really nice courses and White is a fun short one to finish up with.
